Canada is thick with the thieves.
Venezuela: After Opposition Support 'Deflated' - US Targets Food Aid Supply
"That Guaido failed with his clownish coup attempt does not mean that the US [and Canada] will give up on its regime change efforts. Venezuela's economy is in deep crisis. The cause is not the minor socialist attempts its government made, but the economic war the US is waging against it. The Trump administration is now joining the opposition effort to increase the number of people in Venezuela who go hungry..."
US Sanctions Are Crippling Venezuela, but the Bolivarian Revolution is not Defeated! (and vid)
"How much have sanctions cost Venezuela?"

Engler: Canada's Five Year Campaign to Oust Venezuela's Government

"Here's Debbie Wasserman-Schultz with Juan Guaido's fake ambassador, who recently requested US military assistance to help his desperate boss usurp power in Venezuela. Fitting that the corporate tool who fixed DNC primaries has so much affinity for rightist coup plotters."

"Important discussions today in DC with Sec Pompeo about the new NAFTA, the crisis in Venezuela...Thank you for your close partnership with Canada."
CBC Radio still continues to stir the pot of how much of a humanitarian crisis is underway in Venezuela. Meanwhile, no freaking asks for crisis intervention donations from the usual frontline humanitarian workers (i.e. IRC, MSF, MCC, UN, etc).
"Associates of Venezuelan coup frontman Juan Guaido embezzled funds raised in Colombia for humanitarian aid and lavishly spent it on hotels, nightclubs and expensive clothes. This is a monumental scandal. Great work by Orlando Avendano."
Lindsey Graham Wants To Invade Venezuela to Put 'Points on the Board' (and vid)
"Sen Lindsey Graham (R-SC) wants the US to use military forces to intervene in Venezuela to depose the country's contested [by them] president Nicolas Maduro.
